STANLEY can support you at any level; from a single sub-system need to provision and ongoing support of a full, integrated system.
The aim for the security protection of buildings, whether single or multi-tenanted, should be seamless integration across all facets of the premises’ operation. To achieve this it is often useful to break-down the initial considerations and development of a systems-based approach into five areas. In sum these encompass the totality of protection requirements for the people and assets using, and located within, the premises.
- Perimeter Security Management
- Restricted Areas Security Management
- Personal Attack Considerations
- Visitor Management
- General or Specific CCTV Surveillance/Recording
Integration of security systems
Maximisation of integration of the sub-systems required to protect a premises is the key to successful security control.
Various integration platforms provide differing levels of user-friendliness, intelligence and sub-system connectivity. They act as the interface through which access control, CCTV, intruder and related sub-systems report and can be managed. This is the best way to optimise security effectiveness and productivity within the security management function. It also ensures that all resources are mobilised to their fullest when an incident occurs and archives the vital data necessary when post-incident investigations and follow-up audits are made.
A vital aspect of business security
The power and data-handling capacity of these integration tools, combined with the options available in today’s networked world, permits centralised monitoring and control not only of a single major office or commercial site, but also, where larger organisations require it, across multiple sites (including internationally). The ability to hand over the CCTV surveillance of an entire estate to a dedicated, remote monitoring centre outside business hours, for example, brings major efficiencies and can enhance rather than compromise security levels at these times. Systems usually exhibit greater vigilance and lower costs than traditional guarding strategies.
In multi-tenanted sites the most sophisticated of these integrated solutions will be able to provide each tenant with relevant local control/information of the sub-systems (particularly access control) while still meeting central management and control requirements.
